Brain Tumor Surgery

A craniotomy is one of the most widely used techniques to treat a brain tumor. The surgical procedure involves removing a part of the bone from the patient’s skull for better access to the intracranial part of the brain. Based on the location and accessibility of the tumor, the surgery either helps in removing it completely or partially. In cases of partial removal, the patient might also need chemotherapy or radiation post the brain tumor surgery. The part of the brain that is temporarily removed (bone flap) is replaced after the tumor is removed and fastened with screws and plates into its original place. Based on which part of the skull is removed, the surgery is categorized as Frontal, Pterional or Junctional Craniotomy. Sometimes, the surgeon might use a camera with a lighted scope that is inserted through a small incision in the skull, called as an endoscopic craniotomy. If imaging and computer assisted navigation systems are used, the procedure is called stereotactic craniotomy.
